Katwijkse Knip

"Kattukse Knip" is a delicious sweet and crunchy cookie that, when stored properly in a sealed container, stays fresh for a long time. This is the reason why this cookie became so popular in Katwijk; local fishermen used to take it with them when they went out to sea. In the rest of the Netherlands, "Kattukse Knip" is known as 'Jan Hagel'. Try this cookie at one of the bakeries in Katwijk!
